The hike to the top of Half Dome, rising almost 4,800 feet into the air, has gained so much popularity in recent years that a permit system has been put into place to limit traffic on the trail. All through the views at the top of Half Dome may be some of the best that Yosemite has to offer, hikers planning to make the trip need to prepare for quite possibly the most extreme, dangerous trek of their hiking career. Whether you want to commemorate a harrowing journey to the top or appreciate the beauty of this natural landmark without the risk, this topographical model is a perfect way to capture the majesty of Half Dome in the palm of your hand.
Because topography models are meant to be held and touched, they allow you to appreciate the beauty of your favorite terrain in ways that no other product can. The model has been CNC machined out of solid aluminum using 3D models produced with USGS topographical data. With a diameter of 3.5" and a height of up to 1.75" this item is perfect for desks, coffee tables, shelves, and window sills. The many facets of this model shimmer beautifully when placed near a window or other light source.
TRUE TO NATURE
All the topographical models are produced with high resolution USGS topo data collected by the space shuttle in the year 2000. This means that each topograph appears exactly the same as the place it's modeled after.
EXTRAORDINARY QUALITY YOU CAN FEEL GOOD ABOUT
The topographs are 100% made in the USA with American-made materials and tools. We use the highest quality aluminum billet available, which means your model will be around until someone melts it down. Everything from our by-product to our metal-cutting tools, to our packaging, is 100% recyclable to make absolutely sure we leave nothing behind except for awesome products and happy customers. We're also proud to donate a portion of every one of our sales to environmental organizations to preserve our country's natural beauty.
